“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” – Albert Einstein

Perfectly nestled by the sea in Sai Kung, with breathtaking ocean views, the WM Hotel is the latest resort hotel project involving multi- award winning, Alexander Wong Architects. Recently completed, the resort could possibly now challenge some of the best resort hotels in Phuket and Bali.

The stunning Hall of Arrival at the Lobby Natura, reflects the beauty of nature through a palette of browns and bronzes set against wood grain finishes, natural marble, onyx, and a myriad of gentle curves. The high ceiling allows sunlight to stream in during the day while its longer sides are made of glass adorned with organic crystals. These are hung against a full height curtain wall creating half-moon crescents set against an array of Op Art 3d sculptures originally inspired by Victor Vasarely’s artwork. Behind three glowing onyx reception desks sits a special backdrop where countless bronze metallic plates shimmer. The crowning glory is the WM Hotel Logo floating above, partly inspired by the tiaras from the beauty pageants sometimes held here.

A circular atrium where escalators cross, gives access to the Pre-Function Area. The walls here are inspired by nature’s deep ocean corals and the art of origami, expressed as a series of oriental folding screens. Multi-directional half-arch columns support a uniquely undulating ceiling with hexagonal patterns inspired by the forms of auspicious giant tortoise shells adorned with organic crystal chandeliers. The Grand Hall is a huge space adorned with a sequence of sparkling organic chandeliers, as well as crystal wall sconces mounted between the grand arches. The Function Rooms are treated as a set of luxury Salons adorned with gold leafed ceiling and raw silk wall panels above a limestone dado. Inside the spacious hotel suites, many details inspired by the beauty of nature can be further discovered and explored.

The WM Hotel is now open to the public.
